READY IN: 45mins

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This was submitted to the cookbook by my late grandfather - William Parker.

This was very easy to make and delish too! I added some guyere cheese and broiled it as well...I haven't been feeling well and thought some soup would do the trick...this was perfect...I will use this again...thanks for posting. Made and reviewed for Zaar Chow Hounds...ZWT 5.
